Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Wednesday defended Laura Schlessinger, the radio host whose recent racially-charged remarks to a black caller led her to announce the end of her program.
"Dr. Laura," as she is best-known, created an uproar after using the N-word eleven times during a conversation with a caller. She announced Tuesday that she will end the show this year, lamenting her inability to speak freely without being attacked.
In two separate Twitter postings Wednesday night, a bullish Palin implored Americans to be "thankful" for Dr. Laura's voice and blamed her departure on "Constitutional obstructionists" who trampled her First Amendment rights.
"Just as we’d be appalled if any public figure of Rahm’s stature ever used the 'N-word' or other such inappropriate language, Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities – and the people who love them – is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking," Palin wrote.

It is her First Admendment right to drop the N Bomb.
The amendment prohibits the making of any law "respecting an establishment of religion", impeding the free exercise of religion, infringing on the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances. en.wikipedia.org...

Lol. Why is there always blame shifting?

This lady certainly shouldn't lose her job over saying some word that, as she said, black people say all the time. How ridiculous. You know what? I'm white as can be, and black people and Mexicans call me the "n" word all the time. I couldn't care less. I finally have something to agree with Palin on.
